If your other games still work, take the new one back to the store you purchased it from. If your other games are giving you problems then you probably have a laser problem. If you can hear the disc spin, you generally just need to clean the laser lens within the drive. If the disc doesn't even spin, you either have a completely dead laser unit, or a bad spindle motor. Lets just hope it's the laser unit, they only cost like 50 bucks, I don't even know where you could get a new spindle motor. Best of luck

My playstaion 2 wont play any discs


The eye in the tray might be scratched or damaged. This happens with age and the way the Playstation has been setting as well. It is more likely to wear out faster when it is standing upright. Try to play a movie or a game with the playstation in the horizontal way. If not the eye could possibly be damaged beyond repair.

Random unreadable disc errors


I had the same problem but i sent it in. They said it was the eye reader error. Or the thing that reads the disc. Try buying a brand new game and try playing it. Alot of times when i have disc read errors i put the disc in where the xbox 360 part at the top goes in facing the xbox. Try that to see if it helps.

Wont read discs


If it only does this for this one game, you may have a defective game disc, it happens. Often, if you have just recently purchased it, you can return it to the store and tell them that it was defective and get a new one. If not, you can always try cleaning it though I doubt that's the problem.
nintendo.com says "If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options."
